To New Leaders

 

Scouter's Minute

"After forming a cadet corps of boys for assisting as noncombatants during a military campaign in 1900: We then made the discovery that boys, when trusted and relied on, were just as capable and reliable as men." Lord Robert Baden-Powell

The young "men" in your charge are capable of many things. Most of them just don't know it yet. But so too are you capable of many things that you have come to know. I see many new leaders being stared down by the daunting task of having to plan, organize and carry out den meetings. The first few may seem difficult, but at that first pack meeting when you call a boy to receive a pin or a beltloop, you will be rewarded. The "task" will fade quickly.

Consider yourself to be on a journey "with" the boys. The more you challenge yourself and the boys, the greater team you will become.... together.

Seek out training, earn your stripe. It will assist you in gaining confidence and you quickly gain the confidence of others.
